Saturday was a busy day. Had an appointment to get my hair trimmed. When I'm Uptown on a Saturday I like to take time to look around the shops and of course right now there are sales on. I found a winter jacket with a hood (as previously noted, I do not own one which seems silly given the weather we get around here) and even though I knew it was a mistake I checked out the sale racks at my favorite shoe store and, of course, bought shoes (somebody help me, I can't stop myself). Then I needed to do some other shopping/running around, and buy groceries on my way home. Phew. Busy day.
Husband and I made a stir-fry with shrimp & lots of veggies for supper, served over noodles. And as a weekend treat I had some Sour Cream & Chive Crispy Minis for a snack while watching some TV in the evening.
Sunday turned out to be a snow day. It snowed all day - the upside being that at least the temperature warmed up a bit. Husband & I camped out in the living room for a while in the morning, just relaxing, but finally I said I had to get moving and get some things done. Spent the afternoon getting cleaning & laundry done, then got in a workout.
We did another Slow Cooker Sunday which was awesome. We made a recipe called Beef Curry Hotpot from the Company's Coming Slow Cooker Cookbook. I would say that it had the consistency of a stew, but rather that potato, veg & gravy, it had apples, raisins & dried apricots and was flavored with Curry powder (also red pepper flakes because I put them in almost everything I make). We served it over Basmati rice and it was very tasty - sweet & tangy. I don't like beef stew, but this was good and I would definitely make it again. Friendly calorie-count too. And after dinner I had barely a sink full of dishes to do - just the rice cooker and a few other odds & ends that couldn't go in the dishwasher. I think I'm in love with my slow cooker.
After supper I had a Think Organic Bar for dessert. I picked it up at the grocery store on Sautrday to give it a try. I found it to be kind of dry, I think I prefer LaraBars.
This morning I was pleasantly surprised to see 145 lb on the scale. I realize it could bounce back up again tomorrow, but it was still nice to see.
Off-topic question: If you bought a new set of sheets, washed them ~ according to the care instructions ~ and took them out of the dryer to find that one of the corner seams on the fitted sheet had come apart, what would you think/do?
